KaBoom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!
Week 4 for some, Week 1 for others, and what a week it was for everybody at Camp!! For Second Session parents that are beginning to take an interest in the goings on at Camp this summer, the Sammy 5000 is HQ’s computer that calculates Star Totals, Inspection Results, and produces all of the essential figures that help Camp Leelanau operate on a daily basis. From things like temperature of the water at dips to how many pancakes the Cabin of Iroquois consumed on Monday. All the essential figures come from the Sammy. So let’s take a look at the numbers!
Number of 4-week Seniors that took the Bar Exam swim test: 20
Number of 4-week Seniors that passed their level three at the Bar Exam: 20
Number of 4-week Juniors that took the Bar Exam swim test: 14
Number of 4-week Juniors that passed their level three at the Barn Exam: 7
Number of 4-week Juniors that got switched into Swimming Class after the Bar Exam: 7
Number of trays of Fried Chicken served on Super Tuesday at our Picnic at the Shallows: 3

Number of dinner rolls served on Super Tuesday at our Picnic at the Shallows: 150
Number of dinner rolls returned to the Kitchen after our Picnic at the Shallows: 0
Number of pans of Pasta Salad served at our Picnic at the Shallows: 1
Number of full pans of Pasta Salad returned to the Kitchen after our Picnic: 1
Needless to say, these boys can eat. But the Olives and other Indicators of Flavor in the Pasta Salad were a little too ambitious when there was Fried Chicken and Rolls to fill up on.
Number of Moose seen by the crew that hiked Isle Royale this week: 5
Number of calf and cow pairs of Moose seen from an appropriate and safe distance by the crew that hiked Isle Royale: 2
Number of childless cow Moose that took a too close and amorous appreciation of our Trips Counselors: 1
Number of miles fled by our Trips Counselors to avoid further amorous attention from a childless cow Moose: 1.5
Number of Leelanau Campers signed up for Sailing this week: 2
Number of Leelanau Campers that got to ride on a sailboat during evening activity time at the beach on Friday to introduce them to Sailing on Lake Michigan: 25
Number of Leelanau Campers that requested Sailing as their first or second choice of Activities for week 5: 23
Sailing is an amazing activity on Lake Michigan and we are SO grateful we have the beachfront again this year to support it properly. One might suspect collusion or cohersion on the part of the sailing counselor to get such a great showing at signups, but honestly we still can’t believe even after that beautiful evening sail some kids still prefer RCA.
All in all, a great first week to kick off the session. The cabins are bonding well, the North South competitions have begun in earnest at this point, and the whole camp is humming along and appreciating the proper July weather we’ve been having!
Star totals: North 12,000 and South 11,490
